Zipped Back Up
Exposed zippers are going to be even more poular this fall – and they’ll be most predominant at the back where the zippers are large, chunky and industrial.
I already have a few H&M, Graham & Spencer, and Kensie tops that all have a strong industrial zipper up the back. "Alber Elbaz pioneered the whole exposed zipper thing at Lanvin," says stylist Rachel Zoe. "I love a classic chic dress and then an exposed zipper in the back." And there’s also the sexy factor.
I’ve not usually been a big fan of Marc Jacobs, but his Fall line is sitting right with me. He’s got the right amount of minimalism, with shape and finishings – like an exposed zipper. I love this Marc by Marc Jacobs Bramble Tweed Top. The textured tweedy top has a roomy silhouette accentuated by a wide funnel neck and short dolman sleeves. A gleaming exposed zipper runs halfway up the back and two bold buckles rest near the bottom hem.
Zip that baby up – in red please!
